The Used Live At The Pageant

The Used have been going strong for over 10 years and had no problem showing their might at The Pageant in St. Louis on January 22nd, 2013 while headlining the Take Action Tour.

Michael Gira of Swans @ The Firebird | 10.23.12

It’s hard to think of what things to have occurred in St. Louis since Swans played the city last. It’s been over twenty years, and the band has had just as many ups and downs as screwy St. Louie, yet both are currently on an upswing. The venue they played, First Rock, was a fixture […]


Review: Lensbaby Sweet 35

Lensbaby Sweet 35 by Bryan J. Sutter

I’ve enjoyed shooting with the Lensbaby system for over 2 years now.  Rarely do I go out to shoot and leave my Composer at home.  As a music photographer it’s saved my butt in a few situations with tough angles, difficult subject matter, or tricky lighting. I may not always get photos that a major […]


Review: Lensbaby Soft Focus Optic

The Lensbaby Optic Swap System is pretty neat, to say the least. With it, you can have a variety of creative options at your fingertips in just a few quick steps. The core optics (single glass, double glass, plastic, and pinhole) were pretty impressive offerings that made the Lensbaby system very attractive for those looking […]


Favorite Photos of 2011: Part 2

Alright, back into it! Black Lips at The Firebird– Yes, Black Lips show up twice. You wanna know why? Because they rule. After touring around the world for most of the year, Black Lips played their second to last show before Lollapalooza at The Firebird. If you asked any of them what they planned on […]


Favorite Photos of 2011: Part 1

In 2011 there was no shortage of good shows. As the scene grows and matures, more and more national acts have taken notice of what’s going on in Saint Louis. I’ve seen this over the last few years and it excites me to no end. I remember when it felt like no one came here […]


September/October

New day job equals not a lot of free time. I’ve got my Lensbaby review almost finished, as well as some other things going on. Group shot from Trevor Hall’s sold out performance. Stood next to two girls from Colorado who have been following him across the country.


Always Fighting Satan (Part 1)

I haven’t updated in over a month for the following reasons: dealing with copyright infringement, allergies, and trying my best to not fake the funk. It hasn’t been fun, I can tell you that much. If you want to help me out with those things, or just have a gnarly print to show people you’re […]


Jam Skatin’

Update time. As always, you can click the images or go over to the link to the right to check out the full sets. Woven Bones.


“Peach Beer”

Quick update. As always, click any photo to go to it’s respective Flickr page, from which you can check out the rest of the set. Black Gasoline. These guys rule. The sort of stoner rock that you can dig sober and/or without the outdated constraints of a 90s’ genre.


April Is Finished

It’s done, over. Let’s cover the last bit of it. Bruiser Queen debut. composed of members from The 75s and Left Arm.


April Overflow

I recently picked up a new day job. Far from ideal, but it works. Which every job there comes a change in pace and sometimes it can be a bit exhausting for the first week or two. For me, it’s my feet that take the blunt for now. Standing for 8 hours straight on hard […]


Filling The Cracks

Here’s a catch up on the last few weeks. It’s been a blast, looking back on some of this images, it feels like it’s been much longer than a couple weekends. Jedi Mind Tricks. Good set, bad angles. Any music photog will lament about shooting hip hop. It can be really frustrating to just get […]


Black Lips Will Destroy You

There is no witty title for this update. Too much else has to be said about the night for that. I’ve seen the room at the Firebird take on many moods and I feel that it is one of the venue’s many strengths, yet I never expected the absolute white knuckle ride that the Black […]


Selling Live Water

Every time I update this I think that this is going to be where I start updating at least once a week, but that has yet to happen. I spent most of the last month taking care of personal issues and decided that, for the moment, to shoot less while I iron said issues out. […]


The last while

The last week of September I wrecked my car. Thankfully, I had full coverage and things became a matter of time and not a matter of fear, or chance. Though, the month of October was incredibly boring and I missed a lot of shows that I would’ve loved to have shot. Not having a car […]
